What You Can Expect

Windsor Castle Tour from London with Lunch

Enjoy lunch at the Kensington Palace Orangery

Make your way to Victoria Coach Station in central London. Hop aboard your air-conditioned coach, and make the journey to the lovely town of Windsor, home to magnificent Windsor Castle.

As you travel, hear tales of this 1,000-year-old palace-fortress and how it ranks as the world’s oldest occupied castle. Originally built by William the Conqueror in the 11th century, it’s still used by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II as a weekend residence and for state ceremonies. 

On arrival, head inside to explore independently. Stroll around the opulent chambers of the State Apartments, many adorned with paintings by Rembrandt and Canaletto, and learn how they have been home to 39 monarchs. See other highlights and be sure to visit the castle's St George’s Chapel, an echoing Gothic masterpiece that holds the tombs of 10 English monarchs, including the infamous Henry VIII.

Afterward, enjoy a little free time to stroll around Windsor town, set on the banks of the Thames River. Perhaps browse for souvenirs in the quaint shops and see the house where William Shakespeare is said to have penned his play The Merry Wives of Windsor.

After your visit to Windsor, drive back to London and arrive at the upscale neighborhood of Knightsbridge in the center of the city. Here, head inside the cozy Tea Clipper pub, located next door to the world-famous Harrods store, and sit down to a traditional, hearty English lunch of fish and chips. Your tour then ends here after your meal.

Please note: lunch may be taken at another pub or venue in central London.

We had a great time. Being able to visit the State Rooms in Windsor Castle was informative and an eye-opener. Viewing St.George's Chapel brought back memories of a visit in 1981 and also what I had forgotten. Good tour guide and nice to finish with a Fish and Chip lunch at the Tattersalls Inn.

the begining of this tour started out shocking,the day before this tour i rang the tour operator and he said to be in the foyer of our hotel at 7.40am which we arrived at and the person that greeted us was rude and arrogant and told us we were late which i took offence to and later on the bus he said to everyone on board it was like rounding up stray cats and that the only good tourist was a dead one.we spoke to some americans on the bus and they said he was the same with them.after we transfered to our tour bus things changed dramatically and the tour was the best on our european tour,exceptional

The Windsor Castle Tour was great. Our Tour guide kept us moving so we could see most everything in the castle and the church in the short amount of time allotted to us. Could have spent all day exploring the site. Our tour guide David kept us amused with his British dry sense of humor and his exaggerations and falsehoods. Overall he kept us entertained. The lunch stop after the tour was good.

I would give this tour a 5 out of 5 for the venue alone. The castle and St. Georges chapel were in short amazing and I would even do it again. However we were on a time restriction and most people in my group were going on to Stonehenge and Bath etc. I was to wait an hour for another bus to take me back to London. Therefore I had plenty of time to look around. We had to wait so long to get into the castle that it really didn't allow very much time to look around. I felt very sorry for the others who waited patiently. There must be an easier way of moving people through the security checks.

Excellent, Windsor was fantastic and Harrods lunch was brilliant and exceeded expectations. Highly recommended.
